I remember when Frankie's placed their first blatant spam advertising on this blog. It's quite amazing that they can take the time out from their empty bar in the bowels of Futian's free trade zone to deliver so many ridiculously dull pieces.
For those who haven't been to Frankie's yet, imagine an American bar with all the life and cheer sucked out of it. Now imagine being the only person inside it, except for inanely grinning waitresses. Now pretend that in the area around you there are nothing but zombies and the only reason they haven't come inside yet, is because they couldn't get a fucking taxi either. This is the authentic Frankie's bar experience.
Should you venture down anyway, you'll enjoy the cultural highlights of Shenzhen in the form of country music. If you can't be bothered to go to Frankie's for this, you can recreate the joys of country in your own home. Get drunk, beat up your wife, and then cry like a bitch whilst playing the same basic guitar line over and over again. Ladies, it's essential for you to be single and then get drunk and moan like a bitch about men whilst playing that same basic guitar line over and over again.
What else is available in Frankie's in Futian? Well don't forget the overpriced imported whisky - they claim it's the only imported whiskey in town. But they lie, all whisky is imported because they don't make it in China. It comes from places like Ireland, Scotland, Japan, (even America if you count Bourbon - which I do). This is exclusivity Shenzhen style, if you have no selling points - invent some.
Then lets get to those Frankie's burgers, if you enjoy a good piece of meat utterly ruined by being overcooked and served with limp and overheld vegetables - you'll love Frankies. The rest of us will probably stick to places that know how to cook.
The best thing about Frankie's is you'll always be with friends - assuming you enjoy your own company. The rest is all downhill from there.
